how many guests at your wedding?

Recommended Posts

we had 42 including us, in mexico. we didn't do a group rate quote, and our guests picked their own travel dates. which means we had people showing up everyday we we were there. worked out great for us cuz we had time to spend with new people everyday leading up to the wedding.

We had an intimate group of 10 guests, plus my husband and I....it was the perfect number for us, as we felt like we were able to spend more quality time with our guests than if we had had a much larger group.

 

Actually, since it was such a busy week, and Sandals Grande Ocho Rios is so large, we ended up feeling like we didn't have ENOUGH time to spend with some of the guests! Another benefit to having a smaller group is that we were able to do a much more elaborate OOT/Welcome bag for each of them within our budget -- everyone said they really could feel how much we appreciated having them there.

 

And for the friends and family that couldn't attend in Jamaica, we are having a full-scale AHR/local reception in August. We are anticipating between 80-100 people, so we will still get to share in a celebration with them as well! :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
